Rates / Charges

A rating system was developed, which includes costs imposed by the Department of Water Affairs, such as the Water Research Fund, Operation and Maintenance costs of the transfer scheme from the Orange River and the Board’s own Operation and Maintenance costs in the form of an annual budget from which the charges for Irrigators are determined and kept to minimum.

These charges are payable in two instalments being August and February in the financial year, which effectively finances the Board’s operations and finances any imposed obligations by other bodies. The Board does not have any other source of income besides the charges generated in this manner.
